Some neighbors say the site, bordered by Farmington Drive, just off Route 221, is the wrong place to put a new school, espcially if the county condems and takes the land.

Meaning a buffer zone and appropraite landscaping... protecting residents and their property values.
[standup] Residents are also concerned that the roads in these neighborhoods aren't designed to handle the kind of traffic a thousand students would bring, and V-DOT says any road improvements wouldn't come until well after the school is built.

((JEFF ECHOLS/VDOT; WE'D HAVE TO LOOK AT WHETHER OR NOT THE ROADS WOULD NEED TO BE IMPROVED AS PART OF THAT AND ADD IT TO WHAT IS CALLED THE SIX YEAR PLAN TO HAVE IMPROVEMENTS DONE TOO IT, WHICH IS A PROCESS THAT USUALLY TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF TIME.)) [RUNS12]
[OUT Q=bit of time]



Echols says the school project will NOT affect V-DOT's plans to widen another mile of 221 to five lanes.
Meanwhile back in the Farmington neighborhoods, residents are hoping for a large turnout at Tuesday's public hearing. They say if the project goes forward, they want to be involved from the beginning.

Two- year- old Victoria Parker's body was found in her father's burning mobile home near Big Island.
Her 5- year- old brother and uncle suffered burns fleeing the trailer.
The home belonged to John Lee, who had left his two children with his brother while he went to work.
Investigators say the blaze started in a recliner in the living room area.
The children's father told police he smoked a cigarette before leaving the house, but can't remember how he disposed of it.
